On Saturday 17 June, Northlands Olivos Junior Debate team, comprising Year 9 students Marco C., Juan B. and Santiago F., took part in the Argentine Debating Association's Junior Fest at St Gregory's College. We congratulate Valeria Hargain (ON 88), mother of Juan, and Veronica Diaz Ortiz (ON 81), mother of Santiago. Both Juan and Santiago were chosen to compete in the final where the motion was, "This house regrets the lack of strong female characters in movies and television series." The Proposition, led by Juan, won the Grand Final.
A special well done to Juan who was ranked 1st overall and Santiago who came 4th.

The event involves students from schools all over Buenos Aires who are placed in mixed teams, compete for a place in The Grand Final and are then ranked according to their performance throughout the day.
